Facial fillers are an ideal treatment for patients who want to rejuvenate their skin and improve facial volume loss without the need for surgical intervention. At the Glasgold Group, we offer a range of effective injectable fillers in Princeton, New Jersey, geared to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Injectable fillers are substances that are injected into the face, lips, and other parts of the body to replace lost or diminished skin volume. These fillers can help you look younger, more rested by reducing fine lines and wrinkles and plumping up sagging tissues.
Dermal fillers work by adding volume to your face. This is done by placing an injectable filler into the areas that you want to correct, resulting in a more sculpted and youthful look. Results are typically long-lasting, with some improvement possible even after treatment has been completed.
What Are Injectable Fillers Made Of?
Our 20 years of experience of injecting many different materials (hyaluronic acid since 2005) in thousands of patients for facial rejuvenation has resulted in our current thinking that the hyaluronic acid products (Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane) provide the greatest benefit to risk profile.
These materials are significantly longer lasting than believed, often providing results for years when properly injected (remember the advertised duration is based on the company’s FDA submission and not actual duration).
On the safety side, HA are the only injectable material that can be dissolved which is easily accomplished in a few minutes by injecting a chemical, hyaluronidase, into the filler. This gives peace of mind that if the result is unsatisfactory it can be reversed but more importantly it removes the material to allow more effective treatment of any nodules or infection.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Restylane injections are composed of hyaluronic acid filler material in a solution that is injected into the skin area from which you wish to remove excess tissue with either a syringe or a fine-gauge needle and then hardens. The filler material is absorbed by the body over days, gradually restoring the face contour to its natural state. Restylane® is most commonly used to smooth moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from either side of the nose to under the mouth) and “parentheses” lines around the lips. It is also used to diminish the appearance of moderate-to-severe facial scars, including acne scars and surgery scars.
BOTOX is a trademark name for a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A that has been used in dermatology to treat fine lines and wrinkles, muscle overactivity disorders, migraine headaches, and other uses. BOTOX can be used to treat a wide range of medical conditions. For example, it is sometimes prescribed for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and blepharospasm (involuntary blinking). It has also been used to improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles such as “crow’s feet” around the eyes, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, and lateral canthal folds (the excess skin tissue on either side of your outside corner of the eye), as well as lip lines associated with chronic sneering or excessive lip licking.
Juvederm is a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that helps support and maintain the skin. Juvederm is most commonly used to restore volume and fullness to your face that has been lost as a result of aging or facial injury. It is also used to enhance different areas of the face, including lips, cheeks, and chin areas for both men and women. For example, it can be used under the eyes to fill in “sunken” hollows (puffy circles) caused by age or illness. And it can be injected around the mouth to improve lip shape and create more definition around them.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable form of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is a biocompatible material made from the excess lactic acid produced by the body. Sculptra Aesthetic is injected directly into your skin to increase collagen production, resulting in slight swelling at the injection site and gradual correction of scars and folds. It can also be used to improve acne or chickenpox scars. Treatment with Sculptra Aesthetic takes weeks to months depending on how much correction you need as well as how much correction has previously occurred naturally in your skin during this period.
Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma is a volumizing facial injection that provides long-term correction of age-related volume loss in the cheek area, while also providing an improvement to the skin’s texture and tone. Juvéderm Voluma XC is indicated for lip augmentation and perioral (around lips) rejuvenation in adults over the age of 21. Juvéderm Volbella XC combines two aesthetic benefits into one syringe: hyaluronic acid filler material to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles as well as provide fullness for lip enhancement. The treatment can be used on patients over 21 years old who have not had any dermal filler treatments in the past 12 months or if they are candidates for injectable contraception such as
Kybella® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” Patients can benefit from improvements in the contour of their neck and overall body profile. Results can be seen as early as one week. Kybella has a unique mechanism of action that destroys fat cells in the treated area.
What Injectable Fillers Can Treat
Dermal Fillers can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including facial wrinkles or folds such as marionette lines (those across the cheeks), glabellar lines (frown lines between eyebrows), and crow’s feet around eyes. These fillers can also help restore volume to the face that has been lost due to aging, giving you a more youthful, smoother appearance. Target areas include:
- Smile lines & deep rows around the mouth (marionette lines)
- Folds from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) — Voluma can be used here
- A more defined chin — Injectable fillers such as Radiesse or Voluma can be used here
- An improved jawline? Injectable fillers such as Belotero and Sculptra can be used here
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Before your treatment, you will have a consultation to learn more about the dermal filler treatment process and its potential benefits for your unique facial symmetry. The procedure can take about 30 minutes to complete in most cases. During this time, you may feel minimal discomfort or pain at the injection site depending on which filler material is used. You may be given some type of numbing agent if there is discomfort.
The dermal filler process is completely painless and will not require anesthesia. The dermal filler treatment procedure takes only minutes. After the injection, you may experience some mild to moderate swelling, which can last from a few days to several weeks depending on the filler material used. Over time, you will notice the filler settling into your skin, improving its appearance and firmness.

Your safety and satisfaction are our priorities
The recovery following an injectable session is minimal. You will receive a prescription for some pain medication in case you experience discomfort, though this is rarely necessary. When the swelling subsides, your skin may be slightly discolored and tight from the filler material. This can improve with time as you recover from your injectable filler session in Princeton, NJ.
